I would always have given Chelsea youth a chance even if the club had a transfer ban - Frank Lampard

Frank Lampard says he would always have given the young Chelsea players a chance this season - even if the club didn't have a transfer ban.

Since the arrival of Frank Lampard in July, striker Tammy Abraham, midfielder Mason Mount and defender Fikayo Tomori have become regulars.

"I set out this season to see what these young boys could do," he said.

"If I didn't have a transfer ban and had opportunities to bring players in during the summer, I still would have trusted the young boys."

Lampard, 41, was appointed at Stamford Bridge on a three-year deal in with the club not allowed to sign any new players until January 2020.

Abraham and Mount have scored 12 Premier League goals already, with Chelsea in fourth place after 10 games and set to play Manchester United in the Carabao Cup fourth round on Wednesday.
